Who commercialized the world’s first electric snowmobile?


Desautels is behind some of the country’s most innovative startups

Taiga Motors, founded by McGill graduates Gabriel Bernatchez (Beng'16), Sam Bruneau (Beng'15) and Paul Achard (Beng'14), have developed the world’s first electric snowmobile, eliciting interest and enthusiasm from local and international snowmobilers and investors alike.

They credit much of their early success to the McGill Dobson Centre for Entrepreneurship, which connected them with mentors and investors at a crucial point in the start-up’s development. Taiga is presently working to launch a limited pre-order of their eco-friendly snowmobiles for spring 2018.
